Property description

August, September and October are fantastic times to stay. The winds are down, river crowds are gone and the local fruit stands and wine rooms are going strong. This amazing property has over 1000 feet of waterfront. Step out of your Cabin right on to the deck overlooking the dock and great ski water or to the luscious lawn, planted with huge sycamores, figs, and willows. Seasonal blackberries are ready to pick for breakfast. Drop a line in the water, and relax to the sounds of native egrets and watch our local cottontails frolic.

The cozy cabin is located on a four acre private peninsula in the heart of the Delta. The large dock for fishing and boating, the small dock near the 'swimming hole' gives swimmers access as well as sunbathing opportunities. The low tide beach is great for exploring the native egret rookery. The beautiful full deck overhanging Steamboat Slough is perfect for enjoying dinner, drinks, board games or just relaxing.
The property has a additional pathway, we have named Grassel Pass (After a great friend who cut the first path) for you to explore the native bird rookery, amazing delta wildlife, and provides additional access to 4 private beaches and remote camp sites.


Camping sites available on first come first serve basis.

Large tent trailer for 7 available.

Local wildlife: otter, beaver, mink, cotton tail rabbits, pheasant, quail, Large native Snowy Egret and Great Blue Heron rookery. 100's of Cormorants circle in and nest every night as well.

Beautiful water-skiing, fishing, large yard for games, kids and dogs.

Extra buoys for raft-ups.


Some Delta rules that you MAY need to consider:

1. It is against DSC policy for you to work or worry about work at any time during your stay at DSC. However, if you insist, a computer with internet access will be provided for you. Please resist the temptation to look in on daily responsibilities of life back home. Most find that all your worries, trials and tribulations will be safe when left at home and will still be there once you get back to the 'outside world', but have shrunk and diminished in overall manageability.

2. DSC operates on 'Delta Time'. This requires a mental re-boot upon arrival. 'Delta time' means that there is no time and at no time is there anything you must or need to do. i.e. there are no such things as 'should of's', 'could of's', have to's, if only's, honey do's, honey don't's etc. There are only things you did, are doing, and will be doing if you feel like it. Some people are able to get themselves on 'Delta time' easier than others, some have trouble adjusting; therefore, training on getting yourself and the rest of your party on to 'Delta Time' is available upon request and is a free service provided by the experts within the DSC Staff. There are some pre-stay mind exercises that are helpful and you and/or any of your party that is particularly stressed or worried about life's challenges prior to your stay may find it helpful to practice prior to arrival. Blocking any and all incoming thoughts of responsibility is a acquired skill. If this pertains to you, please practice saying the following to your self as often as necessary prior to arrival and the re-booting process on to 'Delta Time'. (Note: Many find the consumption of an adult beverage helpful in the initial re-booting process on to 'Delta Time'; therefore, a bottle of Champagne will be provided for you upon arrival. Please specify blush or white. Substitute and/or add- sparkling cider where appropriate. Please make choice and stipulate with second 1/2 payment of rental sum.)
Say out loud as often as necessary so as pertinent thought process will become automatic when it is becomes applicable once on DSC grounds :

1) Who cares?
2) So what!
3) Maybe-maybe not, haven't given it any thought.
Note: If any of the above are ineffective practice saying 'No Comprende'
3) Lime in left pocket- salt in right pocket. Repeat 5-10 times)
4) That was great! Let's do that again!
5) Eat, sleep, ski, fish, party, rest, repeat. (Not necessarily in that order, adjust as needed.)
6) Key objective. Be here (DSC) now. (Can't be in two places at the same time anyway so don't try.)
Practice makes perfect. Help and encouragement among and within your group my be necessary for those who struggle with initial re-boot; however, all are capable of the mindset- there are no exceptions.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: Scott is a 4th generation farmer on Ryer Island. He graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and returned to his great love, agriculture. He married Demi in 1979 and after living in San Luis Obispo, moved back home to Rio Vista. After a short time they moved out to one of the ranch houses on the island and lived and worked there for 15 years. In 1994 they bought a house and moved to Walnut Grove. In 1996 Demi gave birth to son Malcolm and in 1998, daughter Kerrison. We love to travel and spent many summers exploring and fly fishing the rivers of Montana, Idaho, and South Dakota. We have decided to open up our lovely vacation home to the public not just due to the income but because it is so amazing to see our area through the eyes of someone else. We have had several youth groups come from large cities who get such a look of surprise on their face when they pick and eat their first fresh blackberry. Sharing this beautiful and serene place with others is very rewarding in many ways.

Why the Owner Chose Walnut Grove:
This property has been used by generations of the Stewart family and their friends for many wonderful years. It is one of the few 'waterfront' properties left in the Delta. We have had weddings, birthday parties, Easter Egg hunts, and just general fun.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The peace and quiet of being away from the home phone and the honey-do list lets us relax and enjoy our family time together. Whether we are battling at bocci ball, or sitting on the deck watching the many birds fly by and discussing life issues like, what our favorite color is, or talking about the 'old days', we have truly found some quality time.
